Home, marina and rowing center owners look to BoardSafe for quality and value

When the design team at BoardSafe sat down to engineer the best designs for its floating docks and piers it drew on its 20+ year experience in the construction industry. Homeowners of residential docks and those overseeing the operations of marinas and rowing centers all desire the same things – high quality, low maintenance and tremendous value. The team at BoardSafe selected the best products and processes to achieve these common goals.

BoardSafe uses NyloDeck synthetic deck boards. This decking made of recycled carpet fiber (fiberglass) is among the strongest in the synthetic lumber industry and one of the few deck boards that can be framed 16” on center.  The fiberglass material has no wood flour and therefore it is mold and mildew resistant as well as ground rated. Additionally, it is slip resistant and offered in numerous color options to fit the aesthetic goals of a project. Because it is made of recycled materials, it is one of the most ecologically friendly products on the market.
